Producing pennants, doormats, and other yard-based rectangles, the skilled artisans of Flag Fables festoon once-drab domiciles with vivid ornamentation. The wind-drawn dance of a hand-crafted flag transforms a staid house into a monument to pumpkin carving (full size $62, mid size $57) or America discovering (full size $75, mid size $70), while sports and country-related banderoles gently intone to visitors, "Herein dwells a Luxembourgian Diamondbacks fan." MatMates doormats like the pumpkin cart ($19.95, $44.95 with tray) offer friends, family, and traveling donut salesmen a cheery welcome to your abode, and Magnet Works items add a festive touch to lawns, with four-piece sets such as the Love the Earth collection ($58.95) imbuing diplomatically cohesive flair throughout your house-to-street green zone.
